Diya’s journey as a baker began at age 9, when she made her first cake with her grandmother. But, it was more a hobby, than a serious career consideration. While she had been baking for orphanages since 10th grade, and then old age homes, it was only in April 2015 did she take on baking as a full-time profession. Recalling fondly the experience that inspired her, she says, “With one cake I made all the residents smile and it motivated me to start. I wasn’t only doing something that I loved, I was making someone else happy as well.” Reflecting this thought, she describes her baking company The Sugar Therapy as ‘happiness for sure’.
